The other day I was trying to flash a new rom (Android version 5.0.1) on my Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505) using Odin. The old one was 5.0.1 as well but I had some problems with it.

I flashed this device once before, so I kind of knew what I had to do. When I started flashing it gave me a message with "failed", so I tried it again. It was then showing that there was no PIT partition file anymore. I tried flashing it with a PIT file but nothing seems to have helped it.

I can only go in download mode, not in the recovery mode. The device is stuck at:

Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in kies & try again

I have no idea what to do next.
